Doing Good Together

Our attorneys are active members of the community and are encouraged to volunteer and engage with civic and community organizations. We believe this to be a key component of our women attorneys’ personal and professional development.

Our Women’s Initiative is proud to partner with community organizations throughout the Boston area. In 2017, we hosted celebrated restaurateur Chef Jody Adams for an evening of “Doing Good Together” in support of the Greater Boston Food Bank.
